How many sessions?
It is all according what the issue is being treated. Some phobias can be treated in one or two sessions whilst some issues can take a while longer. It really is down to what is happening , has happened and what we have to do about it. Quick fixes are not an option as you would just get your issue back and then blame me for not dealing with it, so we have to be thorough.
How often will I need to see you?
The issue will usually dictate that as some people are in crisis and need a few sessions to sort out the problem ASAP. Others come when they can afford it and are given work to do to continue the therapy until I see them next. I have clients who pop in now and then for perspective changes or top ups with therapy or mind coaching. In the consultation we work out what is best for you.
I don’t live nearby, can we do this online?
Yes you can! I help people all around the world via Skype or through MSN chat or webcam.
Do you do early morning /evening appointments?
Yes, I work right through from 9am until 8pm Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
How do I pay for sessions?
Online via the payments page, cash or card machine.
What therapy will I have?
I would love to say you will definitely experience a certain therapy but the reality is I have to decide from a few factors from you about which direction to take in your best interest. You are likely to experience more than one therapy. I do teach self hypnosis which clients really love and appreciate as it empowers them to help themselves.
I am scared of some of the therapies, will they harm me?
Not at all, the scariest one for most people is hypnotherapy due to sensationalistic magicians etc but the reality is that you are in control and at anytime can stop what is happening if uncomfortable.
I am on medication, will that affect my therapy?
Not at all, in fact I often advise some clients get medical help if they are experiencing severe trauma or issues and combined with therapy can help them get through and manage their life better.
Are you a real Doctor?
I do get asked this a lot and the answer is no. My business name just reflects my passion for helping someone deal with their problems in life.
